A New Website, Part Six - Drupal Modules

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Modules A module is some additional programming that gives your site some additional functionality. A number of optional modules come installed with the original Drupal download. In addition, you can get many more modules from the Drupal web site. The first step, then, is to look at the list of modules that comes with the Drupal download. So I select 'Site Building' -> 'Modules'. So I activate the module. This will happen for every module.

Returning to constraints

Dave Snowden

The more astute reader may have noticed that I have been writing a series of blog posts that update previous work and explore new ways of defining the general field of naturalising sense-making, and more particularly anthro-complexity as a key aspect of that field.

What Does it Mean to Enrol in a Course?

This means, for example, if you're searching for something, you are searching all your content from all your sources to find the thing you need. It has modules and lessons and an interface to events and activities.

My Moodle Test

Xyleme

For example, if you check out Michael Hanley’s blog , you’ll see that he’s dedicated most of his recent posts to this subject. Brent Schlenker, commenting on Michael Hanley’s blog , says: “. I didn’t believe it myself, so I did the following Google search: “Moodle and standards.” Its 18 months old, so I did a quick search of the Moodle forums to see what the status of the SCORM export feature is today. SCORM is only one of 12 standard learning modules in Moodle.

Content as a Service

In future blog posts, I’ll elaborate on how analytics can drive personalization.). With a library of granular learning assets at your fingertips, you can create content assembly applications that let your users assemble their own learning products by searching, selecting, and sequencing content into new eLearning courses, ePubs, Common Cartridges, QTI assessments, and more. This includes your eLearning modules, PDFs, movies, podcasts, articles, etc.

A sense of direction (3)

Dave Snowden

I’m having to take non-book work with me but I’m rationing my time and will try and blog daily about the work I am doing. I’m going to assume past knowledge here by the way and I don’t have time to make all the linkages to prior posts so you may need to do a search or two if the material is familiar. How much of the recent past can we account for/model by the modulators we are aware of?

Designing E-Learning 3.0 in gRSShopper - 13

This is something that can generate a lot of labour in a hurry (9 modules times 10 people means 90 badges issued.). In this course the evidence comes in the form a blog post. If I click on 'Post', for example, it copies the link content into a post editing window, and I do whatever I need to do to process the post (right now, I have to manually associate the post with a module and actually publish the post).

A New Website, Part Eleven - Content Construction

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

First of all, how do define events: I needed to decide between the ' Calendar ' module and the 'CCK' module. How about the Calendar module? First I had to find it - once again, Drupal's awful search made what should have been a one-minute job a ten minute exercise in frustration. I don't understand the thinking behind the module pages in Drupal. And why doesn't the 'support forum' link to a module-specific support forum?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In a cMOOC one of the core student activities is to create blogs and submit their feed to the MOOC. When I create a new blog post, I list the author, and I list the feed, always. Yes, I could distinguish between blog, magazine, newspaper, book, journal, and whatever, but I don't. Now when I list feeds , there's a way to filter the listing: Figure 83 - List Feeds - search function This is the bit that's broken.

I notice Weller cites Alan Levine's early use of BBS technology (it's unfortunate that this is the only bit of Levine's massive contribution he cites, and that it's nothing more than a comment on Weller's own blog). I remember the black "I'm blogging this" t-shirts.

A New Website, Part Seven - Converting The Data

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What will help is that in addition to the standard modules, which I covered in the previous installment, Drupal has hundreds of additional modules. Creating new node modules allows developers to define and store additional fields in the database that are specific to your site's needs. Some more searching revealed some more discussion, including more posts from Digital Spaghetti but also some from gusaus talking about structured blogging.

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

tools are a form of social networking, but for this module we’re going to focus on “ego-centric&# social networks, those that are focused on individuals, as opposed to networks that build up around objects, such as Delicious, Flickr, Slideshare, etc. It also offers great functionality, including allowing members to write blogs and engage in forum discussions. For instance, this website is on WordPress , an open source blogging platform.

What Universities Must Learn About Social Networks

Jay Cross

How do I search for information?”. As social learning began to create a buzz, LMS vendors have responded by tacking blogs and microblogs (tweet streams) onto their registration and delivery systems. The ease of assembling software applications from plug-and-play modules and checkboxes has led numerous faculty members to build social network systems in-house.

But I run a large and complex site, one which would be impossible to maintain merely by creating and uploading HTML files (even simple blogging websites are too complicated to maintain this way - sure, you could learn how to do it pretty easily, but then you'd be doing a lot of extra work every time you created a new post). WordPress , for example, is popular blogging software, and written in PHP. The Drupal modules.

Distance Learning

A reader writes, I've just changed jobs and am now supporting the development of a distance learning module delivered almost entirely online. You write that your are "now supporting the development of a distance learning module delivered almost entirely online." I see teachers - like Clarence Fisher, Darren Kurowapta, and Konrad Glowgowski - using technologies like blogging in their classes with excellent results.

Drupal’s taxonomy module does. My friend Jon Lebkowsky suggested that I blog my response.

We've been through this with learning objects, with learning design, and more: the problem of learning is not a search problem. In the 'competitive international market' a similar sort of 'convenient' education will be the norm, such as Nottingham's ' Flexible MA ' with a range of "module options to create a personally and professionally meaningful qualification" and "modes of delivery to take account of individual needs and professional."

Often user interaction is provided – the user might type a term into a search widget, for example – and often some form of processing is requested at the remote website. The World Wide Web today contains millions, and maybe billions, of (what used to be called) presentations, ranging from blog posts to wiki entries to videos posted on YouTube to Flickr photographs to SlideShare slide shows. This system was followed in just a few years by blogging.
